Do we require a Class I standpipe system in every single stairshaft

In a fully sprinklered residential building, we have two stairshafts serving all floors and the maximum travel distance from the most remote area on each floor from the 2-1/2 hose connection does not exceed 200ft.


NFPA-14 states that a standpipe connection must be provided in every required exit stairway.


Due to the fact we have two stairway serving the floors, does that mean we shall provide a standpipe connection in each stairway or since the maximum travel distance can be achieved if there is a standpipe in only one stairway, we can only provide one (one required)?


Thanks a lot.
